A Gem of a Zoo – The Detroit Zoo, located between Royal Oak and Huntington Woods, is a gem of a zoo. From summer concerts on Wednesday evenings to its stunning polar bear exhibit, this park is a great attraction. It's difficult to see everything in one day without thoroughly exhausting a family with young kids, but energetic adults could probably see much of it. Fans of the movie Coraline should stop to see the Rackham Fountain featured on the hearth snowglobe (no, the Detroit Zoo does not sell a fountain snowglobe). The zoo and local business sponsor Halloween, Christmas and Easter events for young children. A more exhaustive list of animals includes: butterflies & hummingbirds, penguins, rhinos, zebras, wolverines, eagles, prairie dogs, otters, frogs & other amphibians, snow monkeys and a farmyard.
Get a close look at lions, tigers, bears, penguins and many other wild things at this family fun spot. – In Short
Animals from all over the world roam in the Detroit Zoo's landscaped habitats. Visitors can wander on their own along marked paths and check out attractions like the river otter building or a creepy reptile house. The indoor-outdoor Amphibiville exhibit features more than 60 species of amphibians--from tadpoles to the world's largest species of frog, weighing in at a slimy 10 pounds.
Good zoo – I have been to the zoo a couple of times...I think it is a pretty good zoo, especially for kids. It's maintained pretty well and its pretty clean. There is a lot to learn and do for people of all ages. My favorite exhibits are the polar bears, the lions, and the butterflies. The tram is also fun to ride.
Nearby – the zoo is close to just about any city in the detroit metro area. There's something for every one, young and old
polar bears – The new polar bear exhibit is fantanstic! Don't for get to ride the train
The Best!!!! – What a great place for kids, for solitude, or for romance. The Detroit Zoological Society is a great way to enjoy the zoo year round. You get an unlimited use pass for whatever size family group package you choose. The animal enclosures are very viewer friendly. Make sure you check the feeding schedule and cath the bear feeding. The polar bear disply totally rocks. Watch polar baears from an underwater vantage. The Gardens are exquisite. Don't forgetto ride the train.
9 – The best zoo I have visited. It has a lot of attractions for the amount of space alotted. Especially liked the chimpanzees.
Fly, Swim or Roam with me – to fly in a tropical setting, on the wings of a gentle butterfly or the rapid movement of the hummingbird, to gaze out at big boys of the Antartica in the world best & largest "cccoold" swimming pool, Delite in the antics of the River Otters, to roam the prairies of Africa in search of the rarest of monkeys, baboons, gorillas. to the Mountains of Siberia, and gaze upon Siberian Tigress and her (3) cubs, or the hot pools of the Snow Monkey...in every nook & cranny, you will find something to delight & amaze every generation...Am proud to be a Detroit Zoological Member for 9 yrs running....
Polar Bear Heaven – The new exhibit, the Arctic Ring of Life is fabulous. The polar bears have so much room to play, the seals have a great area to swim, it's wonderful. I think what they have given to these animals is a better environment so the animals don't get bored, a chance to have their minds stimulated more so that they're happier. Their new home is something I think this city should be proud of.
